The trail head is in what is known as the Hayman fire burn area where a few years back a fire consumed hundreds of square miles of forest. Within about 10 minutes from the parking lot the trail works its way into a nice lush river valley that was spared by the fire. Elizabeth did a great job hiking the entire way in.
Jan and Elizabeth caught all kinds of brook trout. The are little fish but are fun to catch.
By the end of the day (well really by about 45 minutes into the day) Andrew and Elizabeth were a mess. If you could gauge how much fun kids have by the dirtiness of their clothes, you can see that Andrew and Elizabeth had a blast. Elizabeth climbed on rocks until she was exhausted and had to ride in the daddy piggy back on the way back to the car.
